The wedding we had the pleasure of planning and styling at Weltevreden was for the lovely couple, Nicole and Jarryd.
Their vision for the celebration was to have an elegant and tasteful affair without being overly extravagant. For the ceremony area, we adorned a beautiful gold circle arch with an arrangement of lush mixed greenery and white flowers, creating a stunning focal point.
Adding to the romance, we delicately adorned the chairs with floral accents and sprinkled rose petals along the aisle, making the walkway a dreamy pathway to the couple’s love-filled exchange of vows.
After the ceremony, we repurposed the arch as a photobooth backdrop during pre-drinks, ensuring it continued to be a captivating element of the festivities.
For the reception, we crafted exquisite greenery and flower runners for the tables, adding a touch of nature and elegance to the overall design.
To set the mood, we strategically placed an abundance of votive candles, casting a warm and enchanting glow throughout the venue.
The combination of lush botanicals, soft floral arrangements, and gentle candlelight created an ambiance that perfectly reflected the couple’s vision of an elegant yet intimate celebration.
It was truly an unforgettable wedding, and we were honored to be a part of bringing Nicole and Jarryd’s dream day to life at the stunning Weltevreden.
We absolutely adore Weltevreden as a wedding venue for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, the venue boasts a range of stunning spaces that can be used for both the ceremony and celebrations.
The convenience of having all areas close by eliminates the need for excessive walking, ensuring a smooth and seamless flow from one part of the celebration to the next.
Additionally, the on-site accommodation is a fantastic feature, providing a perfect space for the bride and her family to get ready and prepare for the big day. It also means that after the festivities, there’s no need for travel, allowing the couple to simply retire to their accommodations and relax.
One aspect that stood out to us was the exceptional staff and management. They were not only helpful but also proactive, going the extra mile to make the day truly special for the couple.
A heartwarming gesture from the venue manager was adorning the honeymoon suite with the flowers from the ceremony area, creating a delightful surprise for the newlyweds when they entered their room. Such thoughtful and considerate touches truly make a difference and add an extra layer of magic to the wedding experience.
All these elements combined make Weltevreden an exceptional venue that we love working with, as it ensures a wonderful and unforgettable wedding celebration for our clients.
